From that title, you'd think we were having a lot of sweets around here. Actually, no. Dessert is a rarity, not a regular course.
The pie was Chicken Pot Pie. I don't have a recipe. I confess I used Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup in this one. Plus leftover chicken and frozen mixed veg. Add some herbs and no one knows. Shh, don't tell.
But the crust was from scratch because I would hear about it from Frank if I cheated on that! Pie crust is cheap to make and so easy in the food processor! That is Frank's blue pie pan under all that pie.
The cake was Cheesecake, made for my father-in-law's 88th birthday. I gave him a choice, of which cheesecake was one of 3 options. The other two were pies, but when the time came to make it I went with the familiar. No one complained about this either.
Soon it will be time for Thanksgiving pies! We are having a very small dinner, so probably only one pie. I think pumpkin will win. No recipe secrets there -- use the recipe on the back of the can!
Although I have made some pretty scrumptious pumpkin cheesecakes. So who knows?
I always have canned pumpkin in the cupboard now, because it was recommended for Homer's issues and the other cats decided they liked it too. So now they all get a spoonful of pumpkin in their dinner. Homer would probably eat a bit of pumpkin pie if it was offered. He's not shy about asking for cheesecake, since he is fan of cream cheese.
What's on your pie or cake menu for the holiday?
